Earl Weaver Manager Baltimore Orioles

Here is Earl Weaver, a Hall of Fame manager for the Baltimore Orioles, and Dan Stanhouse a 1 time all star who pitched for 10 years int he league drinking in the Orioles locker room. Stanhouse allegedly had a reputation for walking batters he did not want to face, which enraged Weaver and made him change smoke cigarettes and gave him the nick name "FullPack" for the amount of cigarettes he would smoke while watching him pitch. Weaver was inducted into the baseball Hall of Fame in 1996, probably with the best statistic -- 97 ejections -- under his plaque.
